Summary: An unusual Aboriginal engraing site in Lane Cove National Park, which contains only emu and kangaroo tracks.

Recorded in the 1970s, this Aboriginal engraving is somewhat unusual as it only has animal tracks. The tracks were described as being both kangaroo tracks and emu tracks, and “appear to relate to a hunting story”. Although many of these engraved tracks are still visible, they are all abraded and there’s no sign of any peck marks.
